Jordan Rountree was born in Paris, France. After high school in the US and in Japan, he was accepted into the prestigious Classe Libre at the Cours Florent acting school in Paris, studying with the Promotion 32 under Jean-Pierre Garnier. During that time he played Hamlet at the Pompidou Center in the multimedia performance “Pourquoi Pas Toi”, in Terence Koh’s “Adansonias”, and recently as “N” in François Orsoni’s “Youth Without God” at the Théâtre de la Bastille. Jordan has also founded the company “Damaetas” with fellow members of the Promotion 32, a fledgling collective and blog that experiments with creating theatrical content for the internet.

We hope the show gets picked up and that we will be seeing more of Rountree, as Whit Stillman is always great at picking fresh new talent.
Twitter is a buzz today over the possibility of Whit Stillman’s upcoming Amazon Series Cosmopolitan having its title changed. The magazine Cosmopolitan apparently is the reason the show cannot be called that name.
The title, according to Stillman’s twitter account (@WhitStillman) will now be The Cosmopolitans. Hopefully something can be sorted out and the original series name can be saved.
Indiewire has listed Whit Stillman as one of “100 Filmmakers to Follow on Twitter.” Check out the article by Paula Bernstein.
The only thing they all have in common is that they all have active Twitter presences. We have created a master list so you can follow everyone here (and we’re adding filmmakers to that list too, so chime in with suggestions).
